J.R.R. Tolkien treated his Middle-earth mythology like it took place on the Earth we know, in an ancient time lost to history. So technically, the Omega Effect could have transported Batman to Numenor in the Second Age. You just know he'd have resisted Sauron's corruption, fled the destruction of the island kingdom with Elendil, helped found Gondor and Arnor, and gone on to become an inspiring symbol of good. So that's why I drew the emblem of the Kings of Gondor with the Bat-symbol in place of the White Tree. It's not because I can't draw Batman himself, no sir.
